Muggy Thursday; Scattered Weekend Showers

Humid weather continues through the weekend. It will stay dry through Thursday before scattered showers and thunderstorms threaten Friday to Sunday.

Patchy morning fog and low clouds will break up to yield partly sunny skies. Lows will be in the upper 60s to low 70s, and highs will be in the low to mid 80s. There will be a 10-20 mph southeast breeze. Thursday night looks cloudy and damp. Patchy fog and mist will form, and a few showers are possible. Lows will be near 70.

The best chance of heavy showers and thunderstorms on Friday is over Western New England. Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts will be mostly cloudy with a lower chance of showers. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s with a south-southeast breeze. It will still be quite humid. Damp conditions will continue Friday night. Lows will be near 70.

Both Saturday and Sunday will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies with pop-up showers and thunderstorms. Neither day looks like a washout. High humidity will continue, and the copious moisture in the atmosphere could lead to locally heavy downpours. The high temperature both days will be in the upper 70s to low 80s. Lows will be near 70. The threat of passing showers and thunderstorms continues at night. Patchy fog will develop near the coast. There will be a persistent, but not very strong, southeast to east breeze.

We’ll be keeping an eye on a storm off the Mid-Atlantic coast this weekend. Right now, it does not look like it will intensify and come close to the coast, but the ocean water is warm, and it’s possible the storm will strengthen and come closer to land than currently projected.

Monday and Tuesday do not look very different from the weekend. Look for partly cloudy skies during the day, and mostly cloudy skies at night. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible during the day as a disturbance approaches from the west. Highs will be near 80, and lows will continue to be close to 70 – rather warm for late-August.
